Believe in Love Ornie

I felt like making an ornie, and decided too that I could incorporate an inchie and use this for an entry into the Gingersnaps Creations Inchies challenge.  This is the result: my Believe in Love Ornie.

Believe in Love Wood Ornie

I started with a simple wood blank, approximately 2x3" in size. I painted it black, then sanded the surface and the edges to give it a distressed look. Next, I stenciled on the word, Believe, in a silver color. Then I took a piece of black and white scrapbook paper and fancied up the edges, and I did the same to part of the packaging for a deck of cards, which is the red and white paper. I glued those pieces together, then found a vintage photo of young lovers sharing a smooch and glued that on top. I adhered them all to the background. I also created a heart out of the same deck of cards packaging and glued that over the "v" in Believe. I finished off the whole thing with a red fabric rosette and some white organdy ribbon.

I think this would look cute on a Christmas Tree, or even hanging on the wall or a peg rack of some sort. And what can I say? I believe in love, so I love playing with that theme any time. Just call me a hopeful romantic.
